What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese word used by the Founding Sensei Mikao Usui meaning universal life force energy, spiritual energy or our true self.

Rei – Means something mysterious and sacred

Ki – Means something unseen or the energy of the universe

The above can be quite confusing to understand, therefore there are a few simple ways that help you think about Reiki.

As a healing system

You can think of Reiki in two ways:

    1. As a natural healing treatment or a complimentary healing practice
    2. Restoring a state of balance of the mind, body and spirit

Reiki practice and treatment is closely aligned to a mindfulness practice and enhances a persons naturally circulating life force energy with that of universal life force energy. This process helps restore a state of balance.

Most importantly there is a far deeper level of practice for the Reiki practitioner:

3. Reiki as a spiritual practice, a practitioner can realise their true nature or enlightened great bright light {Spiritual Energy – Reiki}

This deeper level is the profound path to true healing. The more we practice the more we begin to expose our inner reality cutting away the external aspects of a mind of clinging, grasping, anger, fear and worry.

Therefore, the more we lessen the grip the lighter the energetic load thus exposing our inner hidden treasure. The clearer the outer reality the brighter our inner light shines and we move to a more natural state of compassion.

So the true answer to what is Reiki? is more appropriately responded to as:

The system of Reiki helps us realise our truth.

The practice includes a range of methods and techniques:

The secret of inviting happiness through many blessings, the spiritual medicine for all illness
